I follow an account on twitter that posts cute sayings about marriage or marriage “tips” or things of that nature. I think it may actually be called marriagetips. Anyway, they posted something today that said:
Husbands, when was the last time you gave your wife flowers?
Wives, when was the last time you gave HIM flowers?
And I thought, men want flowers?
Personally, I love flowers as gifts. But I can say with absolute certainty that if I came home one day and said, “Here honey, flowers!” SoldierMan would look at me sideways and go, “Um, flowers? Really?”
It’s kind of like how every person goes through a period before they learn that a gift they would like to receive is not a gift the other person would like to receive. This is how that little tidbit on Twitter struck me, but maybe I’m wrong.
Would your husband like you to give him flowers for his birthday, anniversary or just because? And I don’t mean, like, condolence flowers or some other general social convention, like a pot of poinsettias for Christmas. I mean actual flowers as a romantic gift.
